I READ 100 PAGES EVERY DAY IN MARCH *FAIL* // Aka. The Month I Got Distracted By Keanu Reeves Movies And Forgot To Read (I’m Sorry)

allonsy_chats_discussionsfeature

Hi all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with a wrap up of sorts! I’ve decided to try and incorporate more challenge-style posts into my blogging schedule since you guys asked for that. So, this month (these may not be monthly btw, I’m not BooksandLala) I decided to sort of test the boundaries around my reading since I’m usually very much a chill reader, and just pick up a bok when I want to. I wanted to test myself a bit but also try and moderately track my reading habits!

So, I decided to read 100 pages a day in March! That being said, how could I know how stressful March was going to turn out?!

I thought about restricting my reading to only 100 pages a day but that would mean only reading 3100 pages all month, and sometimes I just want to keep reading if I’m really into a book. The whole point of the challenge is to motivate me to read regularly (or at all) or to remind me to read every day, not to police or restrict a page number each day.

All that being said, I plan my blog content pretty far in advance, so I did forget I had this planned for the month, but I remembered pretty quickly, so this isn’t wholly accurate, but it’s pretty damn close!

WHAT I READ IN JANUARY, FEBRUARY + MARCH! // MY READING AT A GLANCE: 2019

Readingataglancejanfebmar_2018feature

Hey guys, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m coming at you with my reading wrap up of the first three months of the year, January, February & March! I’ve managed to read 48 things so far this year so I’m pretty chuffed with my reading progress so far! I’ve read some new favourites and some… others, and I’ve read books from new genres and age groups and I’m super excited to see what my next wrap up looks like since this one was so varied!

MY WATCHING: AT A GLANCE | 2018 #3

Hey Guys! Today I’m coming at you with all the movies and tv shows I watched inΒ July, August & September! I got most of these out from the library or I already owned them but during this quarter of the year I also saw a whole bunch of new release movies at the cinema because I ended up levelling up to a VIP at my local cinema and because of that I get my movie tickets a whole lot cheaper.Β 

So, I don’t want you guys to think that I’m mega rich or that I don’t know how privileged I am to be able to see all these films. I know that I watch a lot of movies and I’m okay with that, but at the same time I only really spend my money on food at Uni or movie tickets these days, since my reading life has gone out the window!

So, without further ado, these are all the movies and tv I watched in July, August and September!

MY READING: AT A GLANCE | 2018 #1

Hey guys, today I’m coming at you with a pretty massive reading wrap up full of beautiful book covers, pie charts and many many star ratings. In December last year I stopped writing my monthly reading wrap ups and so I figured I would still like you guys to know what I’ve been reading and other than my occasional WWW Wednesday posts I figure this is the best way to let you guys know about what I’ve been reading this year.Β
